Word of the Day: Bleifuß

Bleifuß - "lead foot" (that's "lead" in the sense of the heavy, poisonous metal) sounds like a terrible thing to be afflicted by. It's certainly common amongst Germany's drivers, who usually suffer from it in their right foot, which causes it to fall heavily onto the accelerator (gas pedal) and drive at high speeds.
